Finally have all the pictures uploaded! There's close to 100 of them from the event. I've got another 20 or so of my trip into the city and with my wonderful tour guide Mike Grehan (Mike's just awesome!). I even managed to live up to the wonderful expectation of us Americans in that I knew very little about that guy who defeated Napoleon.
I guess everyone was waiting for some kind of "Bait" from me, perhaps I disappointed everyone? I did bring along all my Mardi Gras fun, beads, boa and masks! Since I didn't get to have my yearly Mardi Gras celebration back home, I brought it with me to London. Chris Pearson was the first brave soul to get his picture taken with the beads and boa on Monday night.
Then I got to introduce myself to Greg Boser, "Hi, I'm that Hat Chick" I said with a chuckle. It was all in great fun, both Greg and his wife are wonderful people who are really fun to hang around with. Greg even tolerated me taking pictures and even wore some beads too.
There was some great times had at this event. It was definitely an interesting adventure for me, being my first time out of the U.S. (besides going to Canuckland). The folks definitely have some odd things going on there - what's up with the hotel key making the lights work, and no wash clothes? Ya'll really need to make a distinction between Chips (not potato chips like pringles) and Fries, and this whole bit about driving on the wrong side of the road, you even have to mark the road which way to look.
Of course I'm just having fun. Seriously though, I swear us tourists don't want to steal your electricity!
So to all my newly made friends, and the ones I missed getting to meet (Paul!) and to see (Danny!), thank you for the hospitality of your wonderful country. Mike thank you for being a wonderful tour guide. I will be back - this time for more leisurely fun!
Enjoy the pictures of SES London 2007!
P.S. To my friends at Party Poker - I have this video of Rob - he does this incredible rendition of the Spice Girls, I could be persuaded to send it along. ;)
